Auctioneers, online and live in the Cranston gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue.

The auction contains 430 lots, curated from across the country. “This auction packs a powerful comic punch, with over three hundred lots of comic books,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm’s Director of Pop Culture. “I’m also proud to say this is the first CGC blue label copy of Marvel Mystery Comics #9 to sell in almost a decade. As one of the most iconic Timely Golden Age comics, it is sure to be a record setter in today’s hot comic market.”

Timely Comics Marvel Mystery Comics #9 is ranked #33 on Overstreet’s Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. The book features the second Sub-Mariner cover with an iconic Human Torch vs. Sub-Mariner battle with classic artwork by Bill Everett and Alex Schomburg. The copy up for bid is graded CGC 4.0 and has a pre-sale estimate of $30,000-$50,000. Per GPA Analysis, it has been over 10 years since a 4.0 blue label graded copy was sold.

“This is a fantastic auction with one of the greatest selection of toys we have had in a long time,” said Kevin Bruneau, Bruneau & Co’s president and an auctioneer. “The Wayland Flowers puppet is also a true blast from the past from my childhood. It is going to be interesting to see what it brings in the market today, with how hot Pop Culture is.”

The “Madame” puppet has a hand-painted composite head with articulated mouth and an elaborate bedazzled gown with rhinestone earrings and necklace. It was recently featured on an episode of PBS' Antiques Roadshow and is accompanied by a VHS of Mr. Flowers using this puppet, a notarized letter about the history of the puppet written by the owner, and photos of Mr. Flowers and the consignor with the puppet.
